TUB D. I. I RUCBIVURSMIP.
The granting of n petition for re
ccivcr for the D I. & P. Co. is n
matter of the utmost importance to
the Deschutes country. That con
cetn was the largest Carey-act op
erator in the state. Its methods
have been much criticized from the
beginning, the fundamental evil be
ing that it started without capita),
upon the idea that the profits would
furnish all the moncv necessary
in other words that the promoters
would get rich without any invest
rucnt of real money of their own
Upon thii first error n lot of others
have been grafted, largely through
the complacency (to use a mild
term) of the slate land board.
The company's affairs having
pretty uniformly gone from bad to
worse, some adjustment like that
now in process was inevitable
With the water wrung out of its
capitalization and an honest and in
telligent supervision by the state
land board in the interest of settlers,
this enterprise would soon be
straightened out and the country
vastly benefited. The difficultio
that have beset this project have
been entirely financial and mana
gerial. The field has been demon
strated to be a rich one and capable
of even ercater development than
was at first expected.
The reason that may be causing

Now is the time to clean up as
well as to subscribe. Nothing clc
so favorably impresses the casual
visitor as a tidy town. And it
yields our own people dividends in

We have before us the subscrip

we are confident that environment

James J. Hill has announced
himself as favoring cold storage

matter with The Bulletin? Its columns
for the past few months hare been filled
with railroad stories taken largely from
the "jaundiced daily." "Conmtencr
